Just because I'm explaining the ABSOLUTE FACT that Relativity and QM can't exist together, or because I believe QM is BS outright. What am I wrong about. Prove me wrong.
Quantum physics describes a universe that is profoundly mysterious. Einstein, arguably the most revolutionary thinker of modern times, struggled greatly with quantum theory. This groundbreaking new perspective, ironically triggered by his own early work, simply didn't fit his views on physical reality. Would quantum theory not have been as successful as it was, Einstein could have brushed it aside. But from the early days, the theory was immensely successful. And no one around him seemed to have any problems with it. Einstein must have felt lonely at times, but he was convinced enough in the power of his own reasoning to persist in his skepticism towards quantum physics.

Space doesn't have pixels, so essentially an electron can travel through an infinite number of spaces while it's traveling around an atom's protons and neutrons. But that's just speculation on my part just like how other scientists "speculate".
The Planck length is about 10^(−20) times the diameter of a proton

First off you don't really know what you or we are even talking about.
Second I agree with Southern in that it gets to a point where you're watching the science channel or listening or reading what certain physicist are talking about and you just have to stand there and say "Come on!"
BTW Stephen Hawkings version of physics, although it has greek symbols and looks like a math equation is NO MATH EQUATION AT ALL. ALL THE EQUATION REPRESENTS IS SOME REDICULOUS THOUGHT. I don't know how they can consider soem of these equations "mathematics" at all.

Conventional wisdom holds that quantum mechanics is hard to learn. This is more or less correct, although often overstated. However, the necessity of abandoning conventional ways of thinking about the world, and finding a radically new way – quantum mechanics – can be understood by any intelligent person willing to spend some time concentrating hard. Conveying that understanding is the purpose of this essay.
Reading the essay requires a little more effort than most blog posts. The argument is occasionally a little abstract, and you may need to read over some paragraphs quite carefully, or perhaps more than once. Ideally, you’ll test your understanding by explaining the entire argument to someone else. The effort is worth it, for when you’re done, you’ll understand one of the great discoveries of all time: why the world needs quantum mechanics.
One of the challenges of understanding modern physics is that some of the concepts seem quite abstract when you’re talking about microscopic objects outside the realm of everyday experience.

No but Einstein's theory did help lead to the bomb. In 1905, as part of his Special Theory of Relativity, he made the intriguing point that a large amount of energy could be released from a small amount of matter. This was expressed by the equation E=mc2 (energy = mass times the speed of light squared). The atomic bomb would clearly illustrate this principle.
